Ray McLean

CEO Leading Teams

“I am extremely passionate about the responsibility of the facilitator in managing the journey for teams and individuals as they strive for high level performance. In particular, as people engage in the more difficult conversations around performance, within the team, the facilitator must ensure the environment is safe.”

Ray McLean is founder of Leading Teams (1992). He has 27 years of experience as a leadership and management consultant. Ray (BEd) began his working life as a teacher, with 10 years in schools in regional Victorian, before moving to his role in leadership and management consultancy. Designing programs for students which focus on understanding of and developing their leadership skills, McLean also delivers educational leadership programs for teachers. As David Parkin (AFL Premiership Coach) notes, “Ray has possibly done more for leadership in its broadest terms in this country than any other person in Australia.”
